The text follows a multi theses model, to map the different things we've been looking at and publish the current state of our research.

It is the closing chapter of a new publication from INC/Transmediale (

"Censuré sous Valéry Giscard d'Estaing et François Mitterrand, le documentaire La Voix de son maître saisit sans fard un discours patronal alors annonciateur de la déferlante néolibérale des années 80."

Tomorrow (Tuesday the 30th) @ccl and i will host a workshop around bots as digital infrapuncture. Starting with an opening lecture by Deb Verhoeven (9:15h-10:00h) who proposed to think with the term "digital infrapuncture" about small infrastructural interventions , a combincation of infrastructure and accupunture. After that there will be bot logic exercises (10:00h-13:00h)!

More information can be found on this page:

Or you can register for the opening lecture here: [google form]

The event is hosted by Datafied Society & Creative Coding Utrecht

In 2016, Deb Verhoeven described the term digital infrapuncture, where infrapuncture is a portmanteau of "infrastructure" and "acupuncture". Tomorrow she will be speaking about it again. @manetta and I will be thinking through addressing stress points in a digital infrastructure with bot logic during a workshop that follows right after!
